Bob Whitlock

Discussion in 'Bassists [DB]' started by Mike Goodbar, Aug 15, 2012.

  1. John Goldsby posted this Marc Meyers interview with West Coast bassist Bob Whitlock, who played with the original Mulligan-Baker pianoless quartet. This statement by Whitlock caught my eye:

    It’s easy to get caught up trying to make your lines too cute. When that happens, the bass loses the reason why it’s there. Meeting that challenge was the reason for going to work every night. I felt like I had utter freedom and I never abused that.

    Great advice.

    Thanks, Mike. I got it. It might have been at my end.
    I completely forgot about Bob Whitlock. Looking forward to more to find out why he didn't stay with the group. There should be a club for "first" bass player. Guys with Coltrane, Brubeck, etc. :D
